01Flashpoint1969052720210330 (BBC7)
20210331 (BBC7)
From the novel Inspector West at Bay by John Creasey
Dramatised as a serial for radio in eight parts by MAURICE TRAVERS

Chief Inspector Roger West and his wife, Janet, are involved in a sinister incident.

This is the third of John Creasey's novels about the detective's adventures to be dramatised for radio.

Patrick Allen and Sarah Lawson, who play the main parts, are also husband and wife in real life - but happily their private life is not as hectic, hair-raising and danger-filled as the one they portray in Stand By For West.

Maurice Hedley, who plays the Assistant Commissioner at Scotland Yard, finds he is a charming old gentleman, but a trifle slow in the uptake.
West's right-hand man on the other hand, the burly Detective Inspector Bill Sloan (Derek Newark), is a solid, dependable type.
West's friend Mark Lessing (James Kerry), is directly involved in the action, and also has a romantic interest in a mysterious young widow called Eve Wedlake (Anna Gilcrist).
